Poppies and Poppy Vase

Just listed a new poppy vase on my website. I do love red poppies, although I have yellow ones at the front of my house, so maybe I should paint yellow ones next!

Recently I’ve seen some beautiful wild flower meadows, which included poppies. It’s great that these are being planted, as they not only help wildlife but enhance the area. I’ve noticed some wildflower displays on roundabouts and the sides of roads.

Some of the meadows have been at National Trust properties and I will be writing more blog posts about those visits.

Looks like we’re going to have more hot sunny weather after a brief respite today. I think all the plants and gardeners will have been glad of today’s rain though!
